Traveling Heart // The Beginning

Via Pinterest


I’m in love with cities I’ve never been to and people I’ve never met.” – John Green

We moved to Connecticut two years ago, and have only left the state for a weekend in Boston. (Actually, we left for a morning to go to brunch a few yards from the state line in Rhode Island once.) It goes without saying how much I miss the West Coast and traveling anywhere, really.

There truly is nothing better than exploring new places, experiencing different cultures and tasting all the amazing food. And the beauty of different languages, that is my idea of heaven.

My board

This blog post series is dedicated to my “Traveling Heart,” the part of me that never likes to sit still. That part is forever itching to see new sites and new faces.  It’s inspired by my Pinterest board of the same name. You can follow it here. That board is a collection of the places I long to go to or go back to.

Now that my beloved and I are more settled in our temporary home in CT, and I have stability in my job, we are finally making plans to travel home and abroad. Anytime I embark on a new journey, a new entry for the series will be posted.

Upcoming Trips:
12/7/18- Aurora, Colorado
12/28/18- Nevada
1/3/19- Central Coast, California

I can’t wait to tell you about all of our adventures! Tell me in the comments below where you long to travel to, and feel free to link your Travel Pinterest boards.

    I live in New York and my son (former Marine) lives in San Diego. Every year I travel out of the country – this past summer went to France. I went to Paris many years ago and loved it. Looking forward to hearing about your trips!! 😊

      France is glorious isn’t it? I spent a week in Paris a few years ago and then two weeks in the South of France. I didn’t want to leave.

        I get it. It’s definitely a different vibe than the states!

    I long to travel to places I’ve read about. I’ve read a lot of Mario Puzo novels and it made me develop a love for Sicily. I wish to travel to Sicily someday.

    This is a great post because for a moment I was thinking about moving to Connecticut. I heard they have lovely autumns, plus I’m trying to escape the humidity on the east coast
